Hi there..

Im trying to use primefaces <p:inputMask for ip address input but it does not seem to allow me to do this.
I have tried
<p:inputMask value="#{bean.ip}" mask="999.999.999.999" size="20"/>


but this restricts input to minimum of 3 numeric characters between every ".".
I want it to work for all kind of IP's where example:
"xxx.xx.xxx.x"
"xxx.x.xx.xx"
"xxx.xx.xxx.xxx"

Thanks in advance...

Hi there,

Not sure what you meant by "mask your ip address with any other ip address"?
Im someone out there has had a similar problem:) and has found a fix...
you are right it is a tough one to crack....

That comment was from a spam user so I've deleted.

Currently masked input does not support this so it must be fixed number of characters, something we are trying to improve soon.
